Because of the volume of supporters expected and the layout of the ground, South Shields have decided to segregate without the need to make it all-ticket.
FC United supporters will be directed to turnstiles 3 and 4, which are at the far end of the ground as you drive to it. Within the segregated area for FC United supporters, food and drinks will be sold, including hot drinks, alcoholic drinks and soft drinks.

South Shields want to encourage as many people as possible to buy tickets in advance to help ease congestion at the turnstiles.
Supporters can get a £1 discount on the turnstile admission cost by purchasing tickets in advance.

For those wishing to find the ground by public transport, local bus services operate to Simonside and the surrounding areas, which are again within walking distance of Mariners Park

Car parking is available on Shaftesbury Avenue, as well as the overflow car park at the nearby Barbour store.

South Shields played in the Football League from 1919 until 1930 when they were renamed Gateshead.
22 of the 59 South Shields League goals have come from 5 former FCUM players, Nathan Lowe, Sefton Gonzales, Adam Thurston, Dominic McHale and leading scorer Jason Gilchrist, whose 13 include a goal at Broadhurst Park in October.
Gilchrist scored 29 in 62 games for FCUM. Lowe scored 9 in 42 games.
FCUM’s only previous visit to Mariners Park was for a friendly in July 2017, losing 0-3.
Highest attendance at Mariners Park for a League game was 2651 for a Northern League Division One clash with North Shields in November 2016.
The Mariners have won their last 4 Away League fixtures but have drawn 1 and lost 2 of their last 3 Home games.
Tunde Owolabi have become the fifth player to score 30 goals or more in a season for FCUM along with Stuart Rudd (45 in 2006-07),
Rory Patterson (39 in 2006-07 & 41 in 2007-08), Michael Norton (32 in 2010-11) and Tom Greaves (36 in 2013-14).
